Wasted Youth – [Landon Cube]

If you’re familiar with the few regulars we post about here on Lyrical Lemonade, Landon Cube shouldn’t be an unfamiliar name. His vocal range is impressive, and his genre-bending style of music keeps fans on their toes, never knowing exactly what to expect but having the utmost confidence that it’s going to be a hit. At first, admittedly, I thought he was just gaining notoriety because of his part in the Cufboys vlogs, but then when I actually took the time to listen in, I realized that his talents were truly something to behold, and I never looked back for even another second. While his dexterity is never something to forget, he decided to come back stronger than ever with a brand-new single entitled “Wasted Youth”, and the outcome is nothing short of spectacular if you ask me.

YAYA and his Woodhull Avenue counterparts however are far from your average drill artists and even on drill-beats rap circles around their competitors who are still spitting nursery-rhyme bars. Instead of this weak and uninspired sound, YAYA is able to make his own sound that is certainly rooted in New York but is made unique between his tongue twisting flow and own ‘Grinchinese’ lingo that has been used by YAYA, Shawny Binladen, Dee Aura, and a couple of other artists I am sure that is beginning to be co-opted and used by many other artists, NYC and beyond. From ‘Mata’ to ‘Figi’ and even the way in which artists are starting to come at beats their influence is obvious and it is clear, at least to me, that they are the hardest artists currently in the New York streets. I am really …
